This degree responds to the climate emergency faced by our planet – a crisis that demands urgent changes to social, political and economic frameworks at a global and local level. As the next generation of global leaders in this area, you will learn the politics behind responses to the emergency in the context of environmental goals agreed by world leaders. You will study environmental geography, politics, philosophy and history. The course combines traditional academic modules with placement options and the opportunity to engage with political parties, local environmental groups, and global charities such as Oxfam. It will prepare you for future employment in the field: you’ll develop expert knowledge of the major debates in relation to climate change; transferable skills including project planning; public speaking; advocacy; verbal and written skills; and how to engage with stakeholders. As well as learning from a team of committed lecturers, you will benefit from hearing from visiting national and international experts.
